| An HF Rig You Really Can Take Anywhere!
|NEW March 2006: 80 Meter /30Meter Module available from stock.
Specifications of the 80/30 Module:
The Elecraft KX1 is a backpacker's dream: an ultra-light, multi-band CW station with internal battery and automatic antenna tuner. But it's also the perfect rig for shorter hikes, emergency use, and just plain fun. The top-mounted controls and plug-in paddle are ideal for beach chair, picnic table, or trail-side operation. You can use the KX1 standing up, or even while relaxing in bed. (Tired of your paperback? Turn on the logbook lamp and work some night-time DX!) The KX1's enclosure measures just 1.2"H x 3"D x 5.3"W.
Big-Rig Features, Operating Convenience
The KX1 includes a superhet receiver with variable-passband crystal filter, RIT, S-meter, DDS VFO w/3 tuning rates, 3-digit display, memory keyer, battery voltage monitor, and a 1 to 4-watt transmitter with full QSK. The VFO covers the full 20 and 40 meter ham bands, with receive-only tuning of nearby SWL segments. 30 meters is available as an option.
Low Current Drain Extends Operating Time
The KX1 is highly efficient, drawing typically 34 mA on receive. The LED display adds only 1 to 2 mA in low to moderate lighting conditions. (VFO frequency and switch presses can also be announced in audio Morse code.) Thanks to the low current drain, you can operate casually for some 20 to 30 hours from internal batteries at the 1 to 2 watt level.
Integrated Options Reduce Station Weight
With the KXAT1 ATU option installed, you can use a lightweight random-wire antenna, in many cases eliminating coax, poles, and loading coils. The KXPD1 paddle option weighs just 1 oz. and is reversible for left-/right-handed use.
Easy to Build and Align
The basic KX1 kit uses a single printed circuit board. Assembly is easy thanks to the use of through-hole (leaded) componentsthe few surface-mount components used are professionally pre-installed. The KX1 can be aligned and tested using nothing more than a digital multimeter and on-air signals.
Comprehensive Assembly and User Manual
Our illustrated step-by-step assembly instructions include modular assembly and check out of each control, receive and transmit stage. Extensive theory of operation and troubleshooting sections are also provided.
Strong Customer Support
Our technical support via telephone and the Internet will get your KX1 up and running quickly. On-line manuals, frequently asked questions (FAQ), and our very active user group email list make building the KX1 a great experience
